Mankind is doing again and will continue doing bad things if we don't try to change our ways but I don't see that happening not anytime soon and that is so sad I really don't have the proper words.

The last part of the article said it, flood mitigation. They'll have to build dams to stop the flooding and the meter the water during the dry part of the year.

How on earth did journalists ever cope before the catchall bogey-man of Climate Change came along? Before then, who did they blame for the vagaries of weather, the famines, the plagues, the over-exploitation of natural resources, and other symptoms of over-population? It seems that the fact that populations in the affected areas have doubled every 10-15 years and that huge areas of forest, savannah and brush land have vanished due to logging, urban sprawl and slash and burn agriculture has absolutely not one tiny bit to do with the problem. The evidence from work carried about by the late Prof. Wangari Maathai in the Mau Summit area of Kenya indicated the deleterious effect of de-forestation on rainfall patterns and surface water supply and quality. Similar evidence from Brazil and elsewhere is available.

Helpful advice from the editor for the 21stcentury journalist, “Please ignore any evidence interfering with your dramatic story that has a plot of helpless victims and a big bad old bogeyman.”
